Synopsis (Goodreads) 

From the author of the phenomenal #1 New York Times bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, a novel that explores the unexpected connections of our lives, and the idea that heaven is more than a place; it’s an answer. 

Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It’s a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie’s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his “meaningless” life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: “Why was I here?”

I have always wanted Funko to come out with I Love Lucy figures. As soon as I saw them I pre-ordered them immediently. I love how they came out with an original Lucy with her signature polkadot dress, Ricky on the bongos and a Lucy with her chocolate factory episode dress. 

I Love Lucy Book Sleeve

I wanted to get another book sleeve this month Because I didn’t want to keep changing my only book sleeve out all the time. So I went on Etsy and I came across this beautiful I Love Lucy one and I just had to get it. The shop is called Always September Shop. I love this book sleeve and will absolutely be purchasing more book sleeves from this shop in the near future. 

 Starbucks Pink Drink

This drink makes me extremely happy. I am sure you have seen this drinks around. It is Summer in a cup. I will drink this all year round. Now to get this pink drink you order a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk and it originally comes with strawberry pieces in it, however I get mine without. Please go and try it you will not regret it.

I have been anticipating this sequel release for a year. This book is everything I could ask for. It melted my heart. Highly recommend this book and the duology. 

American Horror Story 

Ecran_Titre_d'American_Horror_Story

I am in love with this season of American Horror Story. This season is a crossover of Murder House (season 1) and Coven (Season 3) called Apocalypse. The same characters of season 1 and 3 are ion this season as well as some new characters. You absolutely need to watch season 1 and 3 before you watch this season. The show is creepy, beautiful and the acting is phenomenal. Highly recommend.
